Flattered and grateful to be interviewed on my favorite drummer podcast. I went deep for the first time in such a public forum. Real and vulnerable. Thank you Joe Wong and Chris Karwowski. Here you go….
Illinois native, José Medeles, made his way to California as a young man; and his stunning musical versatility served him well as he performed with everyone from Joey Ramone to Ben Harper. José gained international exposure when he joined Kim Deal in The Breeders. He is now the proprietor Revival Drum Shop, considered by many to be the greatest drum shop in the world. José tells Joe about falling in love with drums, proving himself, abandonment issues, the pros and cons of an obsessive work ethic, and learning to be present.
